The inhumane clerical regime in Iran continues its criminal practice of executions in fear of social protests. On Saturday, June 11, Khamenei’s henchmen hanged four prisoners, Aminullah Brahui, Sanaullah Bahadorzehi, Rassam Pudineh, and Ismail Zarouzehi, in Zabul Prison, and on Friday, June 10, sent two prisoners, Vahid Behmaram and Qelich Shokouhi, to the gallows in Urmia Central Prison. The number of executed this week (June 6-11) rose to at least 30.

In another criminal act, on Thursday, June 9, the repressive State Security Force (SSF) humiliated seven prisoners in the Morteza Gerd neighborhood of Tehran, marching them in the streets with their hands tied and pressuring them to insult themselves in public. The medieval practice of public humiliation was broadcast on state radio and television.

“The power of the police is serious, and we deal forcefully with villains and thugs,” said the criminal IRGC Brigadier General Hossein Rahimi, commander of the Tehran SSF, with ridiculous bluster. (State-run Khabar Fori website, June 10)

The increasing rate of executions and inhumane and medieval punishments is indicative of the regime’s fear of public disgust and an uprising. These crimes will increase the people’s revulsion against the ruling mullahs.
